I have just had a fabulous afternoon at the star with 17 of my family, aged between 4 and 74. Staff were attentive and friendly to all and nothing was to much trouble. The food was served quickly and the starters were enjoyed by all. A selection of roasts came next, lovely lamb, beef and chicken with extra veg too....

Visited The Star Inn, Steeple, for lunch with friends. It is a delightful little pub. We received a warm welcome, good service and the food was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the minted shoulder of lamb, which was very tasty. They also offer a very reasonable two course lunchtime special but we chose from the main menu. Would certainly recommend this...

We came here a few weeks ago as we had heard so much about the amazing fish and chips and the beautiful interior. We know Glen and Lisa from Waterside Park so decided we would give it a try. We are really pleased that we did. The interior of the pub is stunning, very boutique, typical locals pub. We all...

Stayed here as it was last minute. The room and toilets were clean. But the heating in the room wasn't working and the bed was terrible. It was completely lob-sided and man noise every time you moved. Also I could clearly here the people in room next door. Breakfast available if booked night before. Won't recommend

Enjoyed a nice Sunday roast dinner here with lots of everything - meat, veg, gravy. Couldn't manage a pudding, although they looked delicious. It's a nice place with large restaurant area and plenty of parking. .

Great pub in the sticks with very friendly staff. The accommodation is very basic. Not a place I would take a girl but for a pit stop it's ideal. Breakfast is decent. Bad mobile phone and Internet coverage in the area.

Thank you so much for your review! I'll be passing on your comments to the bar and resturant staff! Unfortuantly, due to being a little far out, the phone signal cannot be guaranteed but we do offer Wi-Fi in our pub to try and compensate for this though in busy times, it may be slower than usual. Of course, we...

Quiet local pub with pub area sofas, fireplace separate dining area and out door parking and seating. Lovely staff, friendly and attentive. Fairly priced. Food was average for pub food. We had steaks , fish and chips and pasta at our table. Deserts were again, average for pub food. Although food was a little lacking would go back.

“If you need to take any food or milk with you it can be stored in the pubs fridge for you. Also another point rooms nice and close to the car park so no lugging cases or bags to far which was a bonus after a few hours drive, at no time did we hear any noise from the pub its self other rooms or the car park.”
